gushy bio of mr staplegun
Nathan Stapleton is a person that currently resides in Washington state. He is involved in various artistic, etc pursuits including photography, video, etc, experimental music with close friends in his band WAN, poetry, the internet, curating a magazine called FROG LIFE, film, people, +much more. Stapleton was born in rural Ohio, outside of Dayton. I first came in contact with him through a brief exchange regarding Wm S Burroughs on a false facebook profile I was using. These writings were taken from his posts on facebook.com, on his profile + in a forum he admins known as "people that write poetry sometimes and are also poor". Some of them are original work + some are plaintxt versions of the infamous cut up blue text poems that pepper the facebook lit community. Staplegun's enthusiasm for and genuine appreciation of expression are contagious and useful. Hoping in some way to show appreciation for his support and correspondence, I compiled this brief selection of words in December 2012 and January 2013. Also on eye machine recordings is a floppy disk from his band WAN released dec 2012, as well as appearances in our publication Chlorine Gunsmoke.

nothing happening
on a saturday
night

won/t you let me in your room
until i disappear

i played diablo 2 for like 45 mins
just earlier
i wanted to....
i thought about when i first played it in the early
2000s

and that felt good

i used to wake up before school
middle school
when i was going to school then in rurual
ohio

i just to play it

and before the first day of middle school
i was worried about getting to class on time
(switcing classes and all that....
i was so used to the one teacher/1 classroom thing)

i practiced opening a locker for like 2 rs before i went to school

i wanted to make sure that i knew:

where my classes were
where they were all that junk
i couldnt sleep that whole night
i shared a bedroom with my broter
i dont talk to him very
much
diablo 2 is my muse


----------------------------------------
SEVEN

should we put anything else?
in our fridge??

i dunno ...
......................
i just ate a whole block of cheese

i usually write poety on mac laptops

but this one is on a pc from 2006

i can hear it humming

i can type faster opn this thing
its a keyboard
not a big hunk of metal

every time my fingers hits a key
i feel like i/m playing a piano
with 2
fingers

each button has dust on it
tere is a crack in the screen
and Gilbert Morgan's
profile pic is my
desktop background right now

big crack in his face in the monitor
dust all over my hands

feels good to be back in 2006

just before te world ended

i feel like bein saucy
hell ya

whats
in my fridge

i wish hubert selby jr was still alive


----------------------------------------
EIGHT

Today
on the east coast i think
You guys gonna move again?
prolly
i dunno
i plan to always keep moving until i die
im thinking about hitchhiking the whole usa in the summer
depends what life throws me i dunno. im saving money for whatevr i decide to do
That would be one hell of an experience.
I'd never be brave enough to do that
i got inspired by my friend var soandso
he is a modern cyber hobo
my age
i met him in LA
a friend of micah's
he stayed here a bit
and literally hitchhiked down the west coast in 15 days
he jumps trains
he's been everywhere
I'm feeling very introspective this evening
haha youre on break eh?
Yes
back to:
life
This last semester was extremely difficult for me
did u pass everything
Yeah
or difficult as in non academic as well
Yea
ah
do you feel you have conquered the life curve balls or are you still feeling bad
I'm not sure what I feel. I guess I just feel disillusioned
indeed
i am VERY disillusioned
I turn all of my negative energy inward though, so that isn't good.
11:05pm
i dont feel negative anymore
just 100% apathetic kind of
